Update: Sheriff's SWAT find man's body in North Highlands home

SWAT team members have found a man's body inside the North Highlands home they surrounded earlier this morning following a reported shooting, according to authorities.

The man's injuries appear to be self-inflicted, said Sacramento County sheriff's Sgt. Jason Ramos.

Deputies went to the home in the 3700 block of Floral Drive after a man went to a fire station and asked for help. The man said a younger relative had fired off a gun in the home, though not at anyone, Ramos said.

Deputies surrounded the home and attempted to make contact but were not able. SWAT members entered the home and found the man's body shortly before noon.

Family members had advised deputies that the man might have mental health issues, Ramos said. He has not been identified.
